"Mystery" Artist Surprises Fort Lauderdale Businesses with Paintings

A few days ago, New Times received this interesting tale from Fort Lauderdale activist/blogger Cal Deal, via an email titled "Strange Happening:"

An odd thing happened this morning. A "elderly" man in a beret delivered a shiny gift bag to Dr. Stoll's office across the street from me at about 7:30 a.m. ... before anyone was around. He left it by the front door. Okay, I thought, it's just an delivery for an employee.

But minutes later I noticed the man doing the same thing next door to me, at Moldof's law office. Very odd. The man walks very slowly and deliberately, and his right arm seems locked in position.
